detailed solution

Correct option is C

Torque (τ)  acting on a body and angular acceleration (α)  produced in it are related asτ = IαConsider a hollow cylinder around which a rope is wounded.Torque acting on the cylinder due to the force F is  τ=Fr.Now, we have  τ = Iαwhere, I = moment of inertia of the cylinder about the axis through the centre.⇒ I=mr2Given, F=30N,m=3kg and r=40cm=40×10−2mAngular acceleration,α=τI=Frmr2=Fmr=303×40×10−2=1004=25rads−2
